The 16-year old difficult child we have custody of, has runaway. He left Friday afternoon and has not been back since. He received in-school suspension for 3 days on Thursday for getting in a cussing match with another kid. We told him on Thursday that he was grounded until he got out of ISS. He did not get loud, did not yell, he went to his room. We thought everything was OK. About an hour later my husband realized he was gone. He came home at midnight that night. On Friday, he missed the bus but we drove him to school. He had a doctors appointment (he recently had surgery) but left right when we were supposed to leave fir the doctors. He has not been back since. He is refusing to talk to us and the only reason he will give to anyone is that we blame him for everything. We have reported it to the police, but they have not found him. We have been driving around for 4 days, getting little to no sleep waiting to see if would come home. Right now we are at the angry point. If we were allowed at any point in the last 6 months to get him counseling, this probably would not have happened. Now we are being blamed for it happening. It has been a long 4 days of worrying, and I am not sure how much longer I can do this, with the 2 other kids and I of course have to get Bronchitis now. I just feel like he just needs to stop and realize what he is doing. I just hope he comes back soon.
